disappointed stephen

Don’t be afraid to be a fool. Remember you cannot be both young and wise. Young people who pretend to be wise to the ways of the world are mostly just cynics. Cynicism masquerades as wisdom, but it is the farthest thing from it. Because cynics don’t learn anything. Because cynicism is a self-imposed blindness, a rejection of the world because we are afraid it will hurt us or disappoint us. Cynics always say no. But saying yes leads to knowledge. ‘Yes’ is for young people. So for as long as you have the strength to, say yes.

anonymous asked:

What's your Stemily opinion/analysis on the Olicity love scene?

1. I wanted to say that I still don’t undestand one thing: Marc said that Stephen and Emily did everything perfectly from the first try when they were filming, that’s why there’re no bloopers from this scene, but in one of the interviews Emily said this when they asked her about funny outtakes from the sex scene :

was it their private rehearsal? LOL she also said “we didn’t have any headbutts or bumping”, but in the next interview she says she hit his face with her boobs, so I was like okay, they probably rehearsed a lot in their trailers during the discussions of how they wanted to show how Oliver and Felicity “wanted it for so long” XD

in one interview she said that they rushed filming cause she had a flight, in another one she said that they took their time with this scene and shot from many angles, after watching all these interviews, I was like “did I miss something? were there two sex scenes?” lol… mystery

2. we know that CW doesn’t allow much when it comes to sex scenes so I think they made the best of it) I just want to applaud bc this is what the script looks like:

and producers said that Stephen and Emily did everything themselves and after Emily’s “Stephen and I talked about it and this is how we wanted it…” I imagined them be like “so who is gonna be on top?” :D

3. Stephen about sex scene: “I give a lot of credit to Emily.”

Emily about sex scene: “I give all the credit to Stephen for the intimacy of the scene.” awwwwwwww

4. THIS! his moan (0:50) and her reaction to him kissing her neck is priceless, all their sounds are priceless, they knew there will be music there…

5. he did a great job on rubbing ass and thighs

he did a great job on everything actually)

6. drunk Stephen talking about the sex scene… no comments needed really. I wouldn’t call his tongue action “smooching” though lol

7. Stephen was disappointed they’re not on Netflix or some other channel bc he wanted explicit sexual content. Me too, me too(

Cynicism masquerades as wisdom, but it is the farthest thing from it. Because cynics don’t learn anything. Because cynicism is a self-imposed blindness, a rejection of the world because we are afraid it will hurt us or disappoint us.

On D’Angelo Russell, Nick Young & the “Man Code”

So Lakers rookie D’Angelo Russell & teammate Nick Young were in their hotel room on a team road trip when Young was boasting of all the women he slept with recently. This is the same Nick Young who is currently (or was at the time) engaged to rapper Iggy Azalea.

Apparently unbeknownst to Young, D’Angelo Russell was using his phone to record Young’s boasting. Whether by Russell or a hacker (accounts, not surprisingly, differ), the video got posted to the Internet and has been making the rounds.

Sadly, but not surprisingly, the Internet haters (and frustrated Lakers fans) have been blaming Russell for recording the conversation. Lakers head coach Byron Scott, who recently said Russell has acted like a 14-year old, is “disappointed”. Shaquille O’Neal and Stephen Jackson, as well as a couple of NFL players, commented with some variation of “snitches get stitches.” Media reports suggest that Russell’s Lakers teammates are giving him the cold shoulder, refusing to sit at his table at a team breakfast meeting and not talking to him in the locker room.

My take: Why in God’s name isn’t anybody upset with Nick Young? He’s the one who has apparently cheated multiple times on his (for-the-moment) fiancee. He’s the one who treated women like bags of meat. He’s the one who was proud - PROUD - of sneaking behind his fiancee’s back and bragging about it. Like many people who are exposed for their wrongdoing, Young is only upset because he got caught.

Was it a dumb thing for Russell to do? Probably so. I’d have a hard time trusting and/or working with someone who secretly taped personal conversations. But I darn well wouldn’t have any trust for someone who was being unfaithful to his wife/fiancee/girlfriend, much less someone who was bragging about being a lying, cheating dog.

And as for the so-called “Man Code” that Russell is accused of violating: What. A. Total. Crock. My Man Code says that a man doesn’t screw around on his wife/fiancee/girlfriend/date. If you want to be with someone else, guys, fine - but break up first. Have some degree of honor and decency - and, if nothing else, at least have some self-damn-respect.

LAST WORD: You won’t get called out for cheating if you ain’t cheating.

Olicity Wedding Update - New Rational Theory

Update time!!! As most of you know, I’ve been updating the probability of the Olicity wedidng periodically.  We have two main theories - Rationale Theory and Crazy Theory (Olicity Wedding). All of our #1 Rational Theories (Maseo/Tatsu, Roy/Thea/Oliver & LOA) have been eliminated. However, we came up with a NEW rationale theory. It’s an existing theory, but we are looking at it from a new perspective.

Oliver & Nyssa.
